Hi everybody, a question for all Aj authors: is anyone selling something????? I know that summer is a “dead period” for selling, and I can confirm, but I’m just curious about you..

It’s also been my best month, ever. You just have to keep doing as AudioMonks says and the sales will follow.

I didn’t work hard this month because I had exams at school and still I equaled my best month. It’s a combination of making good music and having some luck :)

Here it’s slow as well, yes. But it is getting towards the end/beginning of the month, and often some sales happen then.

Had a bit of a drop over the weekend, but overall sales have been on track this month. Not sure about a summer dead period – summer and fall are actually much better for me than Dec – Feb typically.

It has been a decent month for me. I haven’t hit my monthly goal of 10 tracks, but I have sold 7 and there are a few days left before the end of the month.

The great news is that I finally have a job interview! I’ve been out of work and unemployed, other than my income from AJ, which is usually between $60 – $120 a month. My savings is entirely depleted and I actually owe my parents for a coupke of months now, but I am thinking that I am very likely to get hired!

So that could make this the greatest month ever!

Hey @MrLukeFor,

If it weren’t for being featured last week, I think I’d be in the same boat as you, so it will be interesting seeing what next month is like.

@ guitarjock, good luck buddy, really hope you get the job.

When interest in our tracks drop, I try to remember that sales aren’t a reflection of whether our music is any good. It’s more about whether your music is ‘good’ for a specific purpose and whether that style is popular at the time, cue: ukulele, glockenspiel and plinky plonky music box sounds.

Hard to keep that in mind sometimes, but sales dip n dive for everyone at times, so take it month-by-month if possible (I find that really hard to do, but it’s the best way to get a better idea of how you’re doing I think).

Taco
